©The Life of Galileo 

The Life of Galileo (1965)
Theatre Royal / Bristol, England

Producer: The Bristol Old Vic Company
Playwright: Bertolt Brecht
Cast: Kevin O'Connon, Gawn Granger, Desmond Stokes, Lynne Ashcroft, Peter French
Character: Galileo Galilei

Directed by Christopher Denys
The action takes place in Venice, Florence and Rome between the years 1609 and 1640. The play demonstrates how the explosive exuberance and naive enthusiasm of the scientist lead him into censureship and the shadow of the stake.
He (Galileo) is forced to turn a subservient face to his persecutors so that he may live to complete some of his greatest work.
Translated by Desmond Vesey.
